Why should I install impact windows on my home?

Impact windows are thoroughly tested to withstand Category 5 hurricane conditions and the debris that accompanies them. This means that impact windows are designed to withstand these conditions and help your home avoid the damage typically associated with these type of storms.

Does installing impact windows and doors on my house qualify me for insurance premium discounts?

YES – In order to obtain the discounts or credits, all of the house openings must be protected. Homeowners with questions about mitigation should contact their insurance agents to make sure they are receiving proper credit for any steps taken to strengthen their home. According to Florida statute 627.0629 regarding residential property insurance, all insurance companies that provide homeowners insurance to residents in Florida must offer some type of discount for dwellings that have an effective windstorm protective system installed.

What is the main difference between a standard glass (single-glazed) and a hurricane-impact window?

Impact windows’ and doors’ main design characteristic is the shatter-resistant glass securely fastened to a heavy-duty aluminum frame. The impact-resistant glazing consists of two layers of annealed or tempered glass bonded to an intermediate layer of a shatter-proof membrane. In contrast, standard glass windows are made of standard float glass that, when broken, will fracture in large sharp shards.

Why are impact windows so important to maintaining the structural integrity of the roof of a property?

Windows play a crucial role in maintaining the structural integrity of a home. A broken window can easily trigger destruction of a structure during sustained hurricane forces. When high-speed winds enter a house, they create a significant difference in air pressure between the inside and outside. When this difference occurs, the structure is likely to lose its roof.

Do impact windows and doors come in different glass colors?

Yes, impact windows and doors are available in a variety of color and tints.

Can impact windows help improve energy efficiency in my house?

YES – Impact windows and doors can be configured to significantly improve energy efficiency, and homeowners routinely obtain high levels of year-round comfort while achieving improved energy savings.

Do impact windows provide UV protection in my house?

Impact windows and doors provide virtually 100 percent blockage of ultraviolet (UV) light, protecting valuable interiors, including your favorite photographs, furniture, flooring and rugs, from fading or discoloring due to repeated exposure to direct sunlight. This characteristic is particularly important for Florida residents who enjoy sunshine year-round.

Why choose a BBB accredited business?

If a business has been accredited by the BBB, it means the BBB has determined that they meet accreditation standards, which include a commitment to make a good-faith effort to resolve any consumer complaints. Candidates for BBB accreditation are vetted carefully. Our rules stipulate that before becoming accredited, businesses must first be registered with their Secretary of State; have any necessary licensure; be free of any patterns of complaints, government actions or unanswered/unresolved complaints with the BBB; and have been in operation for more than one year.

Why choose an EPA lead-safe certified firm?

Home repairs that create even a small amount of lead dust are enough to poison your children and put your family at risk. If you live in a home, apartment or condo that was built before 1978, make sure you renovate with a contractor that is lead-safe certified in accordance with the EPA guidelines for any renovation or repair project. They know how to protect your family.

What is the Energy Star label?

Energy Star is the trusted, government-backed symbol for energy efficiency, helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices.

The Energy Star label was established to:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by the inefficient use of energy.
  • Make it easy for consumers to identify and purchase energy-efficient products that offer savings on energy bills without sacrificing performance, features and comfort.

How should you choose a window and door contractor?

Choosing a contractor can be difficult and confusing. Knowing the right questions to ask will help you select the right contractor for you.

You’d be surprised at how many times homeowners hired the wrong contractor simply because they didn’t ask the right questions.

Below are a few important questions to ask a contractor when you are planning a project:

  1. Who are the employees who will be installing my windows or doors?
  2. Are the installers certified by the window manufacturer, and can they provide proof of this?
  3. Is the installation covered by a warranty – if so, for how long?
  4. Is the window or door covered by a warranty – if so, for how long?
  5. Can the contractor provide several customer references, including contact information so I can contact them?
  6. Does the contractor have general liability coverage – how much, and may I have a copy of it?
  7. Does the contractor have workers’ compensation coverage – how much, and may I have a copy of it?
  8. Is the company a member of the Better Business Bureau?
  9. Have there been any complaints filed against the company with the state?
